Logo on products
BONA VITA strives to offer its clients only the highest quality; proof of these efforts is the great number of positive health aspects of BONA VITA products. These products bear logos pointing out these salutary health benefits. But do you know what these logos mean?
The product contains less than 0,2% of TFA
The heart on BONA VITA products' packings symbolizes that the product dies not contain any industrially hardened fats which are the source of so-called trans unsaturated acids ("trans-fatty-acids" - TFA). TFA raise the level of cholesterol and also cause major cardiovascular diseases.
BONA VITA products labelled in this fashion contain wholegrain cereals.
Wholegrain flour also contains the outer layers of the grain. The whole grains are rich in vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids and fibre; the inner parts of the grains do not contain high levels of these valuable substances. Therefore, products with whole grains are healthier from a nutritional perspective.
Wholegrain cereals regulate blood sugar levels and therefore help reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes, and help the heart by preventing the storage of cholesterol. Whole grains contain a great number of immunity-boosting antioxidants. Thanks to their high fibre content they relieve constipation and reduce the risk of cancer of the large intestine.
Low glycemic index
Certain carbohydrates increase blood sugar levels more than others. The more the blood sugar level increases after the consumption of food, the more insulin needs to be released (the hormone produced by the pancreas). The body has a higher tendency to store fat as insulin increases. If two people adhere to a diet with the same energy level, the person who eats food with a lower glycemic index will lose more weight.
The consumption of foods with a low glycemic index is good for all healthy people as prevention against lifestyle diseases such as obesity, diabetes and heart disease.
0% added sugar
BONA VITA products marked in this fashion contain no added sugar. The sugar in these products is only the natural amount occurring in the used ingredients.
Produced from ingredients that have not been genetically modified
BONA VITA products do not contain any ingredients that have been genetically modified (GMO).
Reduce your cholesterol level
Products labelled in this fashion contain substances that help you lower the level of bad cholesterol in your blood. This can be achieved by eating these BONA VITA products instead of animal fats, smoked meats, sweets or fast food.
High blood cholesterol levels increase the risk of heart attack and perhaps even strokes. A change in eating habits, vitamins C and E and certain vegetable substances help maintain a healthy cholesterol level, thus reducing the risk of these catastrophic events.
